Student volunteers at Arty's Friday Food Bag storage facility with program member, Bobbie McCombs
 
During a PTO meeting back in 2012 at Centennial Academy of Fine Arts Education (formerly known as Centennial Elementary), concern was raised about the growing number of students whose only regular meals were those lunches provided by the school. Many of those students had very little food over the weekends and started the school week famished.
On the second Monday of each month, Littleton Rotary members volunteer at Project C.U.R.E. headquarters sorting donated new and surplus medical items. Those items are then boxed, palletised, and readied for shipment to clinics and hospitals in some of the world’s most critical areas. Teams of highly trained Project C.U.R.E. specialists travel to areas of need and do on-site evaluations. Once the evaluation of needs are completed, Project C.U.R.E. works to prepare the shipment and secures funding for transport.
Littleton Rotary spearheaded the fundraising effort that ultimately lead to the purchase of Project C.U.R.E’s. world headquarters located in Centennial, CO.
 
On Sunday, September 18, 13 Rotarians and friends joined other community groups to help Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver process a huge donation of merchandise that will be sold in the 5 Habitat for Humanity ReStores in the Denver area.  The merchandise was donated by vendors who had exhibited at a large True Value Hardware trade show at the Colorado Convention Center.  
 

Littleton Rotary Members Volunteer

 
Many thanks to everyone who made this year’s Operation Christmas Child gift drive a success! We EXCEEDED our goal of filling 130 boxes with gifts for needy children, with an official tally of 139! On November 14, each box was lovingly filled by an enthusiastic team of elves made up of 19 Littleton Rotarians & their spouses/family members, as well as 8 guests. It was a great event and a tremendous show of support by our generous Rotary community!
Breakfast With Santa is a Littleton Rotary holiday tradition that goes back many decades. Today the Rotary Club of Littleton partners with South Suburban Parks and Rec District and provides the volunteers to staff the annual holiday breakfast. The event, held at the Buck Recreation Center in Downtown Littleton,  is open to all and provides for two separate seatings and opportunities children to visit with Santa and share their wishes with him. This year's event took place on Saturday, December 2nd and welcomed almost 200 people. We're not sure who enjoyed the event more, the children and their families, or the Rotarians who happily volunteered.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL FROM LITTLETON ROTARY!
 
Past President and Lifetime Honorary Member, Dale Flowers, was surprised at a recent meeting by being presented with the President's Spirit of Service Award.
 
The award recognized Dale's years of selfless graphic design service and his dedicated efforts in promotion of our literacy projects. Dale's most recent design work resulted in our latest public information brochure, numerous event fliers, and Rotary Peak project graphics.
 
Congratulations, Dale! You show us all what it means to embody the Rotary motto: Service Above Self.
It was an overflow crowd of friends, Rotarians, and well-wishers that assembled at a recent Littleton Rotary Club meeting to honor COL Gerhardt C. (Clem) Clementson in celebration of his 100th birthday. A member of Littleton Rotary since 1988, Clem was awarded Lifetime Honorary Membership in recognition of his commitment to the club and the ideals of Rotary.
 
His active military career included flying the famed P-38 Lightning during WWII, teaching math and computer science at the US Air Force Academy, and ultimately retiring from work in numerous projects at NASA. 
 
Enjoying the celebration were over a dozen other military veterans who are members of the Rotary Club of Littleton. All were presented Rotary lapel pins recognizing them as US Military Veterans. Rotary Clubs throughout the US support numerous local and national programs aimed at providing assistance and support to military veterans and their families.
 
Happy 100th Birthday to COL Clem Clementson! God bless all our veterans.
